Sleep Dentistry
 

Treatment under general anaesthetic.

General anaesthesia dentistry, also known as deep sedation or sleep dentistry, is a type of dental treatment that uses general anaesthesia to help patients relax and feel comfortable during dental procedures. This method of sedation is typically used for patients who have severe dental anxiety, phobia, or for those who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time.

General anaesthesia is a type of medication that is administered by an anaesthesiologist and it puts the patient in a state of unconsciousness. This means that the patient will not be aware of what is happening during the procedure and will not feel pain. The anaesthesiologist will monitor the patient's vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure safety.

General anaesthesia dentistry is typically used for more complex dental procedures such as extractions, root canals, and dental implant placement. It is also useful for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have a high tolerance for pain.

One of the main advantages of general anaesthesia dentistry is that it allows patients to receive the dental care they need without experiencing any pain or discomfort. This is especially beneficial for patients who have severe dental anxiety or phobia, as it allows them to receive the care they need without experiencing any fear or stress.

It also allows patients to complete multiple procedures in one visit, instead of having to come back multiple times, which can be more convenient and efficient.

General anaesthesia dentistry is a safe and effective option for patients who have severe dental anxiety, phobia, or for those who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. It is performed by qualified anaesthesiologists and dentists and the safety of the patient is always the top priority.

In conclusion, general anaesthesia dentistry is a type of dental treatment that uses general anaesthesia to help patients relax and feel comfortable during dental procedures. It is typically used for patients who have severe dental anxiety, phobia, or for those who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. It allows patients to receive the dental care they need without experiencing any pain or discomfort, it can help to reduce the likelihood of patients canceling or postponing important dental appointments, and it can be more convenient and efficient. It is a safe and effective option for patients who need to undergo complex dental procedures.
